Digital Cartography [35]

Selection of Interactive maps about a variety of topics

January 8, 2014

It’s Wednesday, and that means it’s time for Digital Cartography, here on Visual Loop. This first selection of 2014 is full of interesting examples, collected from all over the Internet, in the past three weeks, but before we move on to the list, there’s still time to mention some of the posts that feature the best of 2013 in digital mapping.

Yesterday, we talked about Google Maps Mania huge round up of 200 interactive maps, which also features other selections from Gizmodo, Wired, The Atlantic Cities and Cartonerd.

Speaking of ‘best of 2013′, you can check our owns here:

Also mentioned yesterday, but in the first Vintage InfoDesign of 2014, the digital edition of Charles O. Paullin and John K. Wright’s Atlas of the Historical Geography of the United States. It reproduces all of the atlas’s nearly 700 maps, many of which are enhanced “in ways impossible in print, animated to show change over time or made clickable to view the underlying data—remarkable maps produced eight decades ago with the functionality of the twenty-first century.”.

We open today’s post with this last one:
